Trumbull, CT – February 14, 2019 – TMC today announced ITEXPO held January 29 – February 1, 2019 at the Greater Fort Lauderdale / Broward County Convention Center in Fort Lauderdale, Florida concluded with a robust four days of educational programming, hands on training, keynotes exhibits and networking events. Since its launch 20 years ago, ITEXPO continues to be the one event where telecom and IT professionals, C-levels and business owners, developers, and the channel all gather to learn in conference sessions and conduct business on the show floor. As the annual meeting place for making purchasing decisions and selecting new partners, the 2019 audience was made up largely of resellers, enterprises, service providers and some media, manufacturers and developers.

“In celebration of twenty years of ITEXPO, the 2019 event was truly one of the best yet with unparalleled education and the industry’s most innovative companies and solutions in the exhibit hall. The Fort Lauderdale event lived up to its goal of becoming the Tech SuperShow by offering companies the opportunity to send their entire team to one event to cover a year’s worth of education in cloud, open-source, networking, AI, blockchain, communications, SD-WAN and so much more over just a few days,” said Rich Tehrani, TMC CEO and conference chairman.
